1939 Cadillac Series 39-75 Imperial Sedan


Even though things were getting better in 1939, there were still only 2,069 examples of the Series 75 produced. The 1939 Cadillac 75 Models were completely restyled with; larger windows made for lighter more pleasant interior, and road behaviour was hugely improved by shortening the wheelbase. The Imperial sedan still rode on a 141 inch wheelbase, however, and was powered by a magnificent 346 cubic-inch V8 engine producing an impressive 135 horsepower, coupled with a three-speed manual transmission.

This example I, a touring limousine with division is beautifully finished in Black with the front compartment luxuriously in black leather, and the rear in sumptuous beige cloth. The car clearly represents the pinnacle of bold American art deco design, including a superb dashboard which even still retains its period radio. The styling cues both of the interior and exterior are delightfully typical of luxury car design in the period and the car would take its place in any collection of significant automobiles. The condition of this splendid limousine plainly represents decades of careful use, which will be apparent both to experienced collectors and newcomers.

Diese Touring Limousine ist in wunderschönem Schwarz gefertigt, mit luxuriösem schwarzen Leder im Vorderraum und opulenter beiger Verkleidung hinten. Das Auto vertritt klar den kühnen amerikanischen Art Deco Design, einschließlich eines herrlichen Armaturenbretts, der sogar noch das Radio seines Zeitalters enthält. Die Formgebung und der Stil sowohl des Interieurs, als auch des Äußeren sind typisch für Luxusautos damaliger Zeit gewesen, und so würde das Auto auch heute seinen Platz in jeder Sammlung von bedeutenden Automobilen einnehmen. Der Zustand dieser herrlichen Limousine zeigt den jahrzehntelangen sorgfältigen Gebrauch, der sowohl für erfahrene Sammler als auch für Neulinge offensichtlich ist.
